Written by a cancer survivor:

Oregano, Garlic, Cayenne, Turmeric

These four cancer-fighting spices have powerful health benefits and were part of my daily regimen to heal cancer without chemo. They are common, but not commonly found in American cuisine, so I had to be very deliberate about adding them to my food. I took copious amounts of these four spices and still do today.

They are (organically grown): Oregano, Garlic, Cayenne Pepper, and Turmeric.

The Turmeric plant is a relative of Ginger and has been used for thousands of years in Indian Ayurvedic medicine (the science of long life) as an antiseptic and antibacterial agent to treat infection, inflammation, wound healing, poor digestion, etc. And as you may know, it is also a staple ingredient in Indian, Persian, Thai, and Malaysian Cuisine.

Indians eat a mostly plant-based diet, have some of highest spice consumption in the world, and significantly lower cancer rates than Americans. They have five times less breast cancer, ten times less colorectal cancer, and twelve times less lung cancer on average.

Turmeric is the business because it contains the powerful cancer-fighting polyphenol Curcumin.

Curcumin has been clinically shown to inhibit growth of various cancer cells including: Bone Cancer, Breast Cancer, Brain Tumors, Colon, Liver, Pancreatic, Stomach, Bladder, Kidney, Prostate, Leukemia, Ovarian, Melanoma, and more!

Curcumin has the ability to block every stage of cancer development, from cell mutation, to tumor growth, to metastasis. It can also kill many different types of cancer cells by triggering apoptosis (programmed cell death) without affecting normal cells. It is because of these known benefits, that curcumin has been the subject of cancer research for many decades.

There are hundreds of published studies demonstrating the anti-cancer power of curcumin, but because the pharmaceutical industry hasn’t figured out how to make a patentable FDA-approved drug out of it, curcumin cannot be used in cancer treatment. This is the reality of “evidence-based medicine”, ignoring all evidence that cannot produce patented profitable drugs.

Curry Powder (shown above) is a common ingredient in indian and asian cuisine, is typically a mixture of coriander, turmeric, cumin, fenugreek, and red pepper. I love turmeric and curry powder and I put it on everything. Any time you put turmeric on a dish make sure to add a little black pepper, it increases your body’s absorption of turmeric by about 2000%.

Love the stuff. It’s delicious!

Oregano has extremely high levels of antioxidants and antimicrobial compounds. It is a powerful parasite fighter. One teaspoon of oregano has the same antioxidant power (ORAC) of two cups of red grapes. It contains the phytochemical Quercetin, which is known to slow cancer growth and also promote apoptosis (there’s that word again). And on top of that Oregano is a good source of Vitamin K and Iron.

Garlic is the most powerful anti-cancer spice. Studies all over the world have shown it to lower the risk of developing all types of cancers especially colon, stomach, intestinal, and prostate cancer. It has strong antibacterial properties as well as the ability to block formation and halt activation of cancer-causing substances. It can also enhance DNA repair, slow down cell reproduction, and like Turmeric and Oregano, induce apoptosis. It stops cancer growth and kills cancer cells.

The World Health Organization recommends adults have a daily dose of fresh garlic (approximately one clove). So not only did I put garlic powder on everything I ate, but I also chopped it up raw garlic cloves into little bits and swallowed them like pills. Did I reek of garlic? Oh yeah. Did I care? No I did not.

Cayenne Pepper contains Capsaicin, which is the active compound that sets your lips, tongue, and everything else on fire. Turns out Capsaicin is also the stuff kills cancer cells, causing…can you guess it?

Apoptosis!

Cayenne is also a key ingredient in The Master Cleanse for its detox abilities.

The Hotter the Better: If you can handle the heat, Habanero Peppers contain 4-6 times more Capsaicin than Cayenne with a Scoville rating of 200,000 units. Yeeoow!!!

Here’s a beautiful and fascinating video published Tuesday by U.S. and British researchers in the journal Immunity which shows how cytotoxic T-cells, relentlessly hunt down and destroy cancer cells in your body.

Watch how the T-cells, which appear as roaming orange or green blobs, ruthlessly stalk and attack cancer cells (blue) by blasting them with cytotoxins (red).

“Inside all of us lurks an army of serial killers whose primary function is to kill again and again,” Gillian Griffiths, director of the Cambridge Institute for Medical Research, said in a release detailing the study. “These cells patrol our bodies, identifying and destroying virally infected and cancer cells, and they do so with remarkable precision and efficiency.”

Just another reminder that your immune system is designed to eliminate cancer.

If you have cancerous tumors in your body, this means your immune system is weak, overloaded or suppressed. Healing cancer requires a radical change of diet and lifestyle with nutrition and therapies that build up your body and your immune system.

Any therapy that shrinks tumors in the short term but destroys your immune system will only make matters worse in the long term.

For many years, coffee was considered a vice, linked with sleepless nights and cigarettes.

But scientists have discovered that coffee contains potent antioxidants that can fight numerous ailments, including heart disease and diabetes.  According to the American Coffee Association, 54% of Americans  drink coffee on a daily basis, and they drink, on average, over three cups each.

The diseases coffee can benefit include:
Dementia. Drinking moderate amounts of coffee during middle age – classified as three to five cups daily – can decrease the risk of dementia by 65%, according to a 2009 study by Swedish and Finnish researchers.

Liver disease
In those who drink too much alcohol, those who drank the most coffee – more than four cups every day – reduced their risk of developing alcoholic cirrhosis by 80%.

Heart disease
Research associated with The Nurses’ Health Study found that women who drank two to three cups of coffeedaily had a 25% lower risk of dying from heart disease. Along the same line, a Spanish study found that men who drank more than five cups of coffee each day lowered their risk of dying from heart disease by 44%, and that women who drank four to five cups each day reduced their risk by 34%.

Prostate cancer
A recent study from Harvard Medical School found that men who drank the most coffee slashed their risk of developing the fastest growing and most difficult to treat prostate cancers by more than half when compared to men who drank no coffee.

Gout
Drinking four or more cups of coffee each day dramatically reduces the incidence of gout, say U.S. and Canadian researchers. Men who drank four to five cups daily lowered their risk by 40 percent, and those who drank six or more cups daily reduced their risk of developing gout by 59% when compared to men who didn’t drink coffee.

Breast cancer
Coffee can either reduce the risk of developing breast cancer or delay its onset, according to Swedish studies. They found that coffee alters a woman’s metabolism and produces a safer balance of estrogens. Women who drank two to three cups of coffee a day reduced their cancer risk by as much as two-thirds, depending on the specific type of breast cancer.

Diabetes
Enjoying six or more cups of coffee daily can cut chances of Type 2 diabetes by 54% in men and 30% in women over those who don’t drink coffee.

Parkinson’s disease
Several studies show that drinking coffee lowers a man’s risk of developing Parkinson’s up to 80 percent – and the more the better.

Colon cancer
A Japanese report found that women who drank three or more cups of coffee every day slashed their risk of developing colon cancer in half.

What’s responsible for coffee’s healthy benefits? Most researchers believe it’s the antioxidants (polyphenols or flavonoids) in coffee, but there are hundreds of compounds in coffee that may be partially responsible.

this-powder-is-causing-cancer-in-10000-women

Baby powder is a common sight in all households, even when no baby is present. Most women swear by the talc­based powder, claiming it makes skin soft and younger looking.

If this is you, you need to stop.

Baby powder like the one sold from Johnson and Johnson is increasing women’s risk of being diagnosed with ovarian cancer by 33%.

Dr. Daniel Cramer, epidemiologist, believes that at least 10,000 women develop ovarian cancer as a direct result from using baby powder on a daily basis.

The Shocking Facts

As early as 1982, studies have shown a link between baby powder and ovarian cancer in women. Findings have shown that women using talc­based powders are 300 times more likely to be diagnosed with cancer.

The research hit mainstream media by the New York Times and forced big corporation Johnson and Johnson to reveal the truth behind their product.

Read and Follow The Labels

If you have a bottle of baby powder in your house, go read the label and warnings (and then throw out the bottle).

Johnson and Johnson caution people to avoid the powder coming in contact with their eyes and to avoid inhalation. There’s nothing about talc particle’s ability to stay on the skin for years and travel to your ovaries.

Nor does it state anywhere on the bottle that talc causes inflammation and the perfect environment to grow cancer cells.

Yet, the big corporation admitted to being aware of the dangers of their baby powder as outlined in the 1982 study. And decided they didn’t need to warn their loyal customers of the dangerous side effects of using their line of baby powder products.

That’s Not All

Using baby powder on your baby is probably worse than using it on yourself. The American Academy of Pediatrics has warned parents against using baby powder specifically with talc. This mineral easily becomes airborne and can be inhaled by infants, causing their mucous membranes to dry up.

This effects breathing and can lead to wheezing in babies. Some reported cases of pneumonia in infants have also been traced back to the use of baby powder, but you’d never see that on the warning label.

Why Hide The Facts?

As with any big company, it was all about the money. Would you buy a product that is known to cause cancer? Probably not.

Many recent lawsuits, however, are forcing the company to change their warning label. With a giant “May Cause Cancer” sticker on the side, I think it’s safe to assume this would mean all Johnson and Johnson baby powders would have to be pulled from the shelf.

Safe Alternatives

For babies, the best substitute is petroleum jelly which will help heal a sore bottom. As for adults, it’s safe to use cornstarch­based baby powder to achieve the same soft­skin results.

The Italian study backs up tests carried out by the charity Medical Detection Dogs, which is based in Buckinghamshire.

Its co-founder Dr Claire Guest said its own research had found a 93% reliability rate when detecting bladder and prostate cancer, describing the new findings as “spectacular”.

The latest research, by the Department of Urology at the Humanitas Clinical and Research Centre in Milan, involved two German shepherds sniffing the urine of 900 men – 360 with prostate cancer and 540 without.

Scientists found that dog one got it right in 98.7% of cases, while for dog two this was 97.6%.

They said the dogs are able to detect prostate cancer specific volatile organic compounds in the urine but said an important question remains of how a dog would find it in daily practice.

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK, with more than 40,000 new cases diagnosed every year.

Dr Guest said: “These results are spectacular. They offer us further proof that dogs have the ability to detect human cancer.

“It is particularly exciting that we have such a high success rate in the detection of prostate cancer, for which the existing tests are woefully inadequate.”

She said there is currently a “reluctance to embrace this tested, time-old technology” but dogs can pick up a scent in a dilution of one to a thousand parts.

There is no single test for prostate cancer, but the most commonly used are blood tests, a physical examination or a biopsy.

“Over the years, millions of pounds of NHS funding has been poured into the traditional test methods, and yet there has been little improvement in their reliability,” Dr Guest added.

“This has caused a huge waste of resources, not to mention the distress to the impacted individuals.

“Moreover, the detection dogs provide alternative solution that yields consistently accurate results. If our detection dogs were a machine, there would be huge demand for them.”

Medical Detection Dogs, which is based in Milton Keynes, trains specialist canines to detect the odour of human disease. They also train Medical Alert Assistance dogs to help people with life-threatening health conditions go about their daily lives.

The research is published in the Journal Of Urology.

It’s 1 1/2 hours long, but well worth your time…
